The Route 3007 (Fayette Street) bridge construction was completed in October 2022, and no additional work is scheduled at that location.The Route 201 Bridge over Interstate 70 located in North Belle Vernon Borough and Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County, reopened in both directions along with the I-70 Exit 44 (Arnold City) off-ramp and the Route 3011 (Indian Hill Road) on May 9. Intermittent single-lane restrictions and rolling stoppages began Thursday, March 2 and are anticipated to continue through early June, weather and operational dependent. Overnight single-lane restrictions will occur, as needed, in both directions on Interstate 70 between 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. Overnight rolling stoppages lasting up to 15 minutes will occur, as needed, in both directions on Interstate 70 between 12:00 AM and 4:00 AM. The bridge closure, rolling stoppages, and single-lane restrictions are necessary to allow crews to raise and repair the Route 201 Bridge over Interstate 70. Temporary traffic signals will be in place to aid in the flow of traffic along posted detour routes.

The purpose of this project is to replace the Route 3007 (Fayette Street) bridge over I-70 in North Belle Vernon Borough, Westmoreland County due to structural deficiencies, and to rehabilitate and raise the Route 201 (Rostraver Road) bridge over I-70 to improve vertical clearance and accommodate future widening of I-70. The Route 3007 (Fayette Street) bridge construction was completed in October 2022, and no additional work is scheduled at that location.
As part of the replacement of the Fayette Street Bridge over I-70, improvements include the Route 3007 approach roadway drainage upgrades, signing and pavement markings, and guide rail.
Bridge preservation activities and raising the existing Route 201 (Rostraver Road) structure approximately eight inches over I-70 remain a priority. Work includes replacing the bridge approach slabs, reconstructing the roadway, replacing the concrete curb, and updating the signing and pavement marking, guide rail and other miscellaneous construction.
